Intro to Research for Graduate Students

To help new graduate students get started with research at the Hunter Libraries.

Thesis Collection

We collect copies of Master's theses from Hunter students each year. If you are looking for inspiration for your own thesis, or would like to see what has or has not been written about in recent years, it's a good idea to check the thesis collection. Theses are kept in Special Collections on the 2nd Floor of the Main Campus Library. They cannot be checked out. Be sure to check the hours for Special Collections before making a trip to the library - they are open more limited hours than the library.

Search CUNY+ for Theses

What is it?

CUNY+ is the CUNY-wide Library Catalog. You can search the thesis collection by typing in your department and thesis (anthropology and thesis, economics and thesis). The thesis collection resides in the Archives on the 2nd floor of the library.

It is a good idea to look at the thesis collection before you start your thesis. Check out what others have done before you to get a sense of length, format, and content.
